    I reported a possible COMETS flash at:
    
    ] 4:19:49.2 March 12 UTC, APPROX. RA 09h 00m, Dec +6.5
    ] (2000).  Observing location was 30.2934N, 97.8959W,
    ] 180 m.
    
    I forgot to mention that the two flashes we saw were 
    about as bright as nearby Procyon (alpha Canis Minor),
    which is +0.4 magnitude.
    
    One other thing is that on Mark Wade's Encyclopedia
    Astronautica, COMETS is called Kakehashi.
